Larry Tripplett visits Cincinnati

New, comments

The Bengals confirmed a visit with former Buffalo Bills defensive tackle, Larry Tripplett. Tripplett, a 293 pound unrestricted free agent, played his first four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, primarily as a backup the last two seasons with the Colts. He moved on to the Bills in 2006 and started all 32 games. Injury hasn't been a major problem in his career.

Defensive tackle for the Bengals is in short supply. After likely starters John Thornton and Domata Peko, the Bengals have Michael Myers and Titus Adams. Trades for Shaun Rogers and DeWayne Robertson fell through during the first week of free agency. A good bet is that the Bengals take at least one defensive tackle during the first day of the NFL draft.
